This is my TOP OF THE LINE Cigar Box Guitar body!! For great deals on Carl's Custom Guitars VERY popular Speaker Soak power tube speaker line attenuator, handmade boutique analog vintage style pedals (they are all 2 in 1 pedals: Univibe/Phase 90, ToneBender MarkII/Fuzzface Fuzz and Fuzz/Octave Fuzz), other model hand made electric 6 string Cigar Box Guitars you gotta see these! , famous Volume Box guitar amp attenuators and all sorts of other cool stuff here.
Accepts any standard Fender style 25.5 inch scale bolt-on neck, the whole fretboard is completely accessible on this instrument when assembled, play all the way up to the very last fret and beyond! When a neck is installed this makes a FULL SIZE 25.5 scale instrument (same as all standard Strats, Teles etc) yet the entire guitar is under 36 inches long and only weighs about 5 lbs, SUPER comfy and easy to play. The pickups are sweeeeeeet sounding GHS Modern Vintage/Modern humbuckers with a push/pull coil tap on the tone control that splits them down to a single coil if you choose, full size alpha volume pot as well. You can really squeeze a LOT of different tones out of this guitar, its like a mini ES-335 crossed with a Strat/Tele and then some, lots of full-on humbucker bite and richness with nice overtones from the semi-hollow body, but yet plenty of snappy quack when you want it as well, especially when you engage the coiltap and split the humbuckers down to single coils. This is a lovingly handcrafted instrument again built by ME, Carl of Carl's Custom Guitars, you are dealing directly with the guy who made this instrument here, no middlemen messing things up and taking a piece of the pie.Everything shown in the pictures is of course included: volume and tone controls with chrome knobs, quality sealed tuners, strap buttons, all chrome hardware (including the hinges and the clasp on the cigar box), neck plate and screws, input jack and plate and even rubber feet on the body which act as its own built in guitar stand, very cool!! Long before the days of internet shopping and large musical superstores many people had to work with whatever limited resources they had available to produce homegrown musical instruments. There is a long tradition of crudely made cigar box "guitars", diddley bo's etc etc which were basically a cigar box tacked to a piece of wood for a neck with some wire attached to pluck on, a lot of fun for the front porch but not something you can realistically plug into an amp and rip into on stage, what I have done here is taken that classic concept and brought it into the 21st century!! Yes, there is a VERY real guitar built around this wooden cigar box, and yes it REALLY opens, revealing the solid mahogany body a GREAT guitar tone-wood! , you can even still keep some cigars in there hehe! The dimensions of the box are 2.5x6&5/8x9.75 inches. Again, this is a handmade custom instrument that is fully capable of being played everywhere from strumming on your couch to a pro stage rig at full volume (and everywhere in between), its a surprisingly versatile instrument, has the warmth of a semi hollow body guitar combined with the bite of a solid body! For more good deals, thanks so much!!
Please note : Carl's Custom Guitars is a one man operation, I make all of my products. You will receive your merchandise as quickly as I can make that happen and it will be well worth any wait. I work very hard to build the best products that I possibly can and offer them to you at very affordable prices.
I also have a moneyback satisfaction guarantee on my items, and I certainly appreciate your business. Please note that there are many slight variations to neck hole patterns that different manufacturers use so I can't absolutely guarantee that every pre-drilled neck will line up perfectly with neck mounting holes on the body (I use the standard Fender specs), not a big deal, very simple to redrill new holes on your neck if such is the case but just want to state that here..
